This is a great spice cake with no "guilty aftertaste"! It's good with the glaze listed or with a vanilla or lemon sauce like you make for gingerbread. It's moist enough to eat plain, too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, salt and cloves.
  2. Add applesauce, yogurt, egg, and oil; mix well.
  3. Stir in raisins (note: I like to soften the raisins in hot water for a few minutes before adding them-they're plumper and softer that way).
  4. Pour into greased and floured 12-cup Bundt or 13 x 9 inch pan.
  5. Bake at 325 F.
  6. for 50- 60 mins, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  7. Cool 15 mins.
  8. Serve with Quick Yogurt Glaze: Glaze: In small bowl, combine Dannon Plain Nonfat Yogurt, brown sugar and vanilla.
  9. Beat with fork or whisk until smooth.
  10. (This is also good with orange or lemon extract instead of vanilla).

Very good. The flavor of the spice and apples was good. I did use 1 apple finely chopped instead of the raisins and substitued 1 cup of Splenda and 3/4 cup of brown sugar for the sugar.

GREAT! I omitted the raisins because I don't care for them in my baked goods. So moist and yummy!

Pretty nice spice cake. I made it in a 13x9 inch pan and we ate half on its own (no glaze) and froze the rest. I pulled it out of the freezer the night before Thanksgiving and put the glaze on it for Thanksgiving brunch. Nice flavor, not as moist as I was hoping. And while I usually love a lot of "stuff" in cakes I thought there were more raisins in this one then I liked. A few less next time.
